Late in the season so it was very quiet. I had a Moussaka, it was alright. Nothing to write home about. Didn't really see much of the staff, it was very quiet though. Probably a bit more atmosphere earlier in the season. Nice environment but I wouldn't rush back.

This is a typical Greek taverna where sitting outside under a covered pergola is the norm. Food and service were very good without being over the top. We chose all Greek style food which was well cooked, interesting and well presented. A good choice of food and wines and well worth visiting.

Another wonderful meal in this lovely family run taverna, some of the best local wine I have tasted in Crete, food is always fresh and full of flavour - the owner always has time for a chat and a smile, we will be back in May 2015

Up a side street near the bottomless lake, green and very pleasant traditional restaurant with fresh and tasty food and great value house wines. The proprietor is very involved in service and everything seems cooked to order so don't expect it to come quick. We ate there twice in a four night stay and enjoyed the food, atmosphere and personal... More
